I came back after more than 10 years. Didn't change to much inside. Outside and area around all new. Very nice service, good food, cold beer.

This is close to my hotel, so I like to stop by after work to grab a beer. Not sure if the band(s) play during the week, but on the weekends its nice to kick back and watch them play. Beer is a bit expensive, but its still a good way to finish the day. Many expats and some locals... More

This was the place to go in SIP 5 or 6 years ago. Sadly it's a bit scruffy nowadays, and the service has level has gone down as the prices have gone up. Having said that, it's still a pretty decent bar with reasonably good western food. The band are pretty good and play most nights. Still popular with expats,... More

Familiar food and beverage at the Blue Marlin. A great home away from home and excellent place to strike up a conversation with someone else visiting China for an extended period.

The place is nice. Food and drinks are good. The atmosphere in the night is the best. But some of the waitress are not so professional and not warm to the guest. They gotta pay attention to that

Popular place - visited on a Thursday evening and there was a good crowd. Bar has 2 sides: one, typical of a Western sports bar with multiple big screen TV's and a football (well, soccer!) game on TV. Other side had live music. Both sides attractive and lively. Service reasonable but perhaps a little slow (though as noted it was... More

I ordered a lasagne with a few Belgian beers. For Belgian beers, no question ask, simply good. The lasagne was well made and nicely presented. I'd say it was very value for money. I went there was just for the pool table as I heard the pool table there was quite well maintained. The fact was that the pool table... More

If you want to have something else than asian food Blue Marlin is a very good alternative. Staff is friendly and Burgers are highly recommended.
